Style Weekly talks with bar working families

Working and sometimes fighting for each other is part of the deal.

Running a bar is hard work, working with your family is also hard combine the two and you can either get a successful combo or a disaster.

Style Weekly takes a look at families that are making it work in Richmond. Including Rosie O’Connely, Sam Miller’s, Cha-Cha’s Cantina, Casa Del Barco, and more.

Rowdy behavior isn’t confined to the 20-something set. While Rosie Connolly’s crowd rarely is rowdy, Tommy Goulding recalls having to toss out a foul-mouthed tweaker who assaulted his daughter.

“One girl got wacky, she was definitely on drugs,” he says. “She clouted Helen, so I took her out the door. Then, she pushed me down out into the street. We both got banged up.”

Their family embraces the typical scouser motto, his daughter says: “We take care of each other and don’t take shit from anyone else.”
